Vanities for Powder Room
A powder room is generally the smallest room in the house as it does not have a bathing area. A mirror and sink though are crucial for this bathroom but a complete vanity solution is optional. It totally depends on the fact whether storage is required in this bathroom. Always keep in mind that this room is generally used for very limited purposes so it does not require a lot of storage. Ideally a vanity that is simple and can hold just one sink along with a minimal counter top should ideally be sufficient. But then again it is totally dependent on the usage.
To choose the best vanity for this area, take the measurements of the bathroom and according to that, decide the size of the vanity you require. The best option for a small powder room can be to accommodate a pedestal sink that is accompanied with a beautiful mirror on the wall.
